Off campus student affairs

Many students move off-campus during their time at University.

Here, you will find everything you need to know to help and support you as a member of your local community.

We've got plenty of advice and guidance on what it takes to be a good neighbour and how to get involved with your community. 

You'll also find information about crime prevention and staying safe as well as the all important helpful hints on house-hunting.

To keep up to date with what is going on off-campus, follow us on Twitter, or visit our blog


Living in the community


A number of our students will choose to live off campus during their time at The University of Nottingham. Have a look at our Living in the community page to find out how to make the most of living off-campus. You can also read simple advice on being a good neighbour, and how to give back to your local community.

Student housing


Try not to be pressured into deciding who you would like to live with too early on in the academic year. Once you've made this important decision, take a look at our simple steps to make sure that you secure good quality accommodation for you and your housemates. For more in-depth advice on house hunting, including both on campus and off campus options, you can visit the accommodation website. Our Students' Union have created some videos and a checklist to give you some practical tips on house hunting.

Safety in the city


Nottingham has been recognised for its safety and has a Purple Flag City Centre. We run educational campaigns for students each year to reinforce key messages about taking simple steps to keep safe. Take a look at our Safety in the city page to find out some simple precautions you can take to avoid becoming a victim of crime.


Community Campaigns

The University of Nottingham Off Campus Affairs team runs a range of educational campaigns and projects each academic year, aimed at imparting key messages to students who have chosen to live in the community whilst completing their studies.
